At the request of the bearer Mr Key, I have presumed to trouble you with this letter, to introduce to your notice & countenance that young gentleman, who, I flatter myself, will endeavour to deserve your good opinion, & favour. Should hostilities be suspended and a negotiation take place this winter, I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you in this city on your way to Virginia. If a treaty is...
I would just suggest the propriety of Sending Some active persons to Bristol & Trenton to impress Wagons to remove what continental Stores are at those places & may be carried thither from Pha in consequence of your orders to Colo. Hamilton—This measure is the more necessary as the order of Congress for removing these Stores is suspended till their meeting at Lancaster wh. may not be Some...
I have had some conversation with Mr Peters Secretary to our board, who informs me that in the month of June last 1000 tin cartridges boxes were sent to the army and delivered to a Captain French: Mr Peters moreover informs me that to his certain knowlege several of these cartridges boxes were converted by the Soldiers into cantines & by some officers into shaving boxes. Commissary Flowers...
I was honored with your letter of the 31st past, on the 3d instant; until then I was unacquainted with the defect of your title in the lands purchased of Clifton: I had always understood that my father had let the balance decreed to him remain in the hands of the Commissioners, from a different cause than the one assigned in your letter. He had instituted a suit in chancery against his...
I received on the 7th. instant your favor of the 23d. past. I have delayed thus long answering it with a hope that I might discover whether the antifederal party in this State had in view the person referred to in your letter. I suspect a communication of Sentiments is maintained by the leaders of this party throughout the United States; however I have not heard his name even whispered; his...
By an act of this Legislature, passed yesterday, Mr Thomas Harwood, who is treasurer of this Shore, will be obliged to resign his place of Commissioner of loans, the duties of which have in fact been performed by his brother Mr Benjamin Harwood. Mr Thomas Harwood has requested me to recommend to you his brother, and wishes that he may be appointed Commissioner of loans. I assure you, Sir, you...
I received the 25th instant, late in the evening, your letter of the 23d. Early in the morning of the 26th, the post left this place, so that I had not Sufficient time to make up my mind respecting the acceptance or refusal of the commission mentioned in your letter, nor to inform you by last Saturday’s post of my determination. I have seriously weighed the reasons urged to induce me to accept...
Mr Hyram Faris a young man of good character and good constitution and able bodied, whose father and family have been many years residents of this place, has applied to me to recommend him to you for a lieutenancy in the marines to be raised to serve on board the Frigates. Should you think proper to comply with this request, you will oblige me, and a deserving young man who I am confident will...
I was yesterday favored with your letter of the 2d instant. Your sentiments respecting the proper qualifications of Aids to a Commander in chief, or of a separate army are very just; unquestionably persons of experience should have the preference for the forcible reasons you mention; but I thought that they, who had acquired experience by actual service during the last war, would aim at, &...
When you have perused the subjoined testimonials, which I have copied from the originals, you will readily perceive, that nothing I can say, can add to the strong recommendations given to the gentleman, in whose behalf I take the liberty to address this letter to you. The Count de Moelien is desirous of employment in our army the line of his profession; bred a Soldier an inactive life neither...
